MOROKA Swallows intend flying away with maximum points to continue their supremacy over Free State Stars in an Absa Premiership match at Dobsonville Stadium tonight.

Kickoff is at 7.30pm.

"We are going to show them the stars. We want to prove that the first- round win in Free State was no fluke," said Swallows right-back Vincent Kobola yesterday.

Swallows beat Ea Lla Koto 1-0 in their first- round encounter in Bethlehem in August, thanks to a goal by Siyabonga Nomvete.

Struggling Stars are still chasing their first win under new coach Gordon Igesund and striker Tebelo Mofokeng promised that they would "put up a big fight to ensure that we go back to Bethlehem with three points".

They will have to do it without Ghanaian defender Jonathan Mensah, who is in Italy with Udinese for a medical, after agreeing on terms.

Arrows welcome Aces today at Chatsworth Stadium at 3.30pm, with the hosts favourites.
